'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Player Praises McCarthy

His stay at Molineux may not have been the most illustrious.

But as a betting man, his guide to form can usually be relied on for a fair and true picture of the field.

Speaking on the BBC website former Wolves striker Steve Claridge has given his asessment of Wolves chances of promotion, and their achievments so far this campaign.

And it's all good.

After pointing out that the teams currently sitting at the top of the pile are those who have splashed the cash, up to 4 million on one player, he singles out the men who he sees as having done the best managerial job so far.

'I think that Preston boss Paul Simpson and Wolves manager Mick McCarthy have been the best managers in the division precisely because they are working with smaller squads and limited budgets.'

'Wolves lost a lot of their best players last summer but McCarthy has bought well in the likes of Andy Keogh and Michael Kightly - and they are on a great run of form.' he said.

And he is just as positive in his review of where he sees Wolves finishing this year, adding :

'I think that WBA, the Black Cats and Saints will contest the two automatic promotion places, while the sixth and final play-off spot will be claimed by one of Wolves, Preston and Cardiff.'

Cheers for the vote of confidence Steve, heres hoping this is one accumulator you get right!
